New paper in Nature Geoscience


Mountains are among the most biodiverse places on Earth, but scientists have struggled to fully understand why they are so important in creating high species richness. In a new paper in Nature Geoscience, an international research team, including W. Daniel Kissling from the BIOMAC lab, shows how species richness of birds, mammals and amphibians in the world's mountains is related of temperature, precipitation, erosion rates, relief and soil composition.
